Housekeepers 2

When you are a housekeeper to the wealthy, the clean-up never truly ends... and taking care of these particular households involves mopping up a whole lot of felonies.

In this series, things aren't quite what they seem as unlikely characters get pulled into a never-ending life of crime.

This season, a feisty new detective begins connecting the dots and realises that when it comes to last season's killings, all evidence points to the protagonist, Linda (Thando Thabethe).

To make matters worse, Linda is drawn into a sizzling romance, but when she soon discovers the full extent of her lover's macabre plans and an unbelievable hidden history – everything spirals out of control.

In Season 2 there is a raft of new characters, including Xolile Tshabalala as matriarch Noli Ngubane and Lindani Nkosi as patriarch Clive Ngubane.

Lorcia Cooper joins the cast as the spicy Mkhonto, alongside Sthembiso "SK" Khoza as Sydney Ngubane and Kwezi Ndlovu as Thuli Ngubane.

The new season also features Dumisani Mbebe, Kayise Ngqula, Nimrod Nkosi and Liopelo Maphathe as Officer Maluleke.

Will it be easy to clean house this time? Will the rich continue to get away with murder while the poor suffer?

More importantly, when one dabbles in a life of crime, does it really pay?

Young Sheldon 2

For 10 years on The Big Bang Theory, you've come to know the iconic, eccentric and extraordinary Sheldon Cooper.

This single-camera, half-hour comedy gives us the chance to meet him in childhood, as he embarks on his innocent, awkward, and hopeful journey toward the man he will become.

For 9-year-old Sheldon, it isn't easy growing up in East Texas. Being a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science isn't always helpful in a land where church and football are king.

And while the vulnerable, gifted and somewhat naïve Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him.

In the Season 2 premiere, "A High-Pitched Buzz and Training Wheels": After Sheldon dismantles the refrigerator to stop an annoying hum, he gets a paper route to pay for the repairs.

Genre: True Crime, Documentary Series, Docu-Drama

Three Days to Live

It's a story that dominates the headlines all too often - every hour a woman is taken, and the chances of finding her alive diminish greatly if she is not found within 72 hours of her disappearance.

Three Days to Live delves into the crucial days immediately following a harrowing abduction with recreations and first-hand interviews from authorities and loved ones.

News correspondent SuChin Pak narrates the series, taking you through the twists and turns of each tormenting case.

From a young girl who is taken by a group of masked men, and held at ransom after answering a knock at the door; to a suburban South Carolina wife and mother who never returned home after a holiday shopping spree, each mystery is unraveled, and you will witness justice being served, no matter the outcome.

In the series premiere, "Teri Jendusa Nicolai": 911 dispatch receives an alarming call from a missing woman trapped in the trunk of a car. Her life, and those of her two young daughters are in danger.

Investigators work around the clock to locate them before time runs out.
